Choir Section Leader Needed

Baritone/Bass Section Leader

McKinley Presbyterian Church in Champaign (809 S 5th St), a progressive Christian congregation (www.mckinley-church.org), is seeking a Baritone/Bass section leader. This opportunity is best suited for a local student and/or a qualified singer looking to earn additional income.

Responsibilities:
  • Attend Wednesday choir rehearsals (7-8pm) and Sunday worship services (10:30-11:45am—call time is 10am) from now through Christmas and from late January through the end of May.
  • Attend an extra Saturday morning rehearsal in December (probably Dec 10) to prepare for our annual Choir Sunday. There might be another extra rehearsal in the spring semester.
Qualifications:
  • Ability to read sheet music relatively well and to sing various styles and genres of music, including traditional, gospel, and music from other countries (sometimes in other languages).
  • Willingness to sing out and serve as a model for others singing the same part.
Salary:
  • $25 per “commitment” (every rehearsal or church service you attend and sing with the choir). You can thus earn $50 weekly, with a one-hour rehearsal on Wednesday and one hour and 45 minutes’ commitment on Sunday.
